I am impartial about this book. It certainly wasn't bad. Some of the stories were beautiful -- very human. Others, I felt, fell into the realm of stereotype -- some of those felt like "issue" stories as opposed to character stories. Overall, it wasn't a bad book, but I'd probably recommend An Island Like You to a student before I'd recommend this one.
An influencial book for my writing--getting a sense of place and exploring adolescent voice.
Loved it!!!!
